Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
At the office of Thompson and Starbody, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services to help you achieve your best possible smile. Some of our most popular services include:
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment designed to remove stains from your teeth caused by smoking, coffee, tea, or other factors. We offer both in-office and take-home options to cater to your specific needs and preferences. Our teeth whitening treatments are safe and effective and can improve the overall appearance of your teeth.
Veneers are a quick and effective way to transform the appearance of your smile. These thin layers of porcelain are custom-made to fit over your teeth and can cover up imperfections such as cracks, chips, or discoloration. With proper care, veneers can last for many years and give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
Dental implants can provide a permanent, natural-looking solution that will improve your overall oral health. Implants are surgically placed into your jawbone to function like your natural teeth. Dental implants can last a lifetime with excellent maintenance and improve your overall oral health by preventing bone loss and maintaining the integrity of your jaw.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure where a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the surface of a tooth and hardened with a special light. It can repair chipped or cracked teeth, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, or fill gaps between teeth.
The bonding material is custom-colored to match the shade of your natural teeth, giving you a seamless, natural-looking smile. Bonding is a simple, affordable, and non-invasive cosmetic treatment often completed in just one visit to your dentist.
Cosmetic fillings, also known as tooth-colored or composite fillings, are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, fractures, or wear. Unlike traditional metal fillings, cosmetic fillings are made of a tooth-colored resin material that is bonded directly to the tooth, providing a seamless, natural-looking restoration.
The cosmetic filling material is strong, durable, and long-lasting and can be personalized to match the shade of your natural teeth. This makes cosmetic fillings a popular choice for those who want a discreet and natural-looking restoration.
Invisalign is a clear aligner treatment used to straighten teeth gradually. It involves wearing custom-made, almost invisible plastic aligners changed every two weeks. Invisalign is effective in treating various dental issues such as overcrowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. One of the benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable, making it easy to maintain good oral hygiene during your treatment.
Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are prosthetic devices used to restore damaged or missing teeth. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring a false tooth between two crowns that are placed over the adjacent teeth.
Both crowns and bridges can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys, and are customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth. They can also be used as restorations for dental implants to replace missing teeth and improve your oral health.
Frequently Asked Questions
The length of your treatment will depend on the specific procedure you are receiving. For example, teeth whitening treatments are often completed in a single visit, while dental implant treatments can take several months to complete.
Most cosmetic dentistry treatments are relatively painless and do not require any downtime or recovery. However, our team will work with you to ensure you’re comfortable throughout your procedure.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments may not be covered by insurance because they’re considered elective procedures. However, insurance may cover some treatments if they’re deemed medically necessary. You should contact your insurance provider beforehand to confirm with them which costs they can cover. Your cosmetic dentist may also offer in-office financing.
The longevity of cosmetic dentistry treatments can vary depending on the procedure and how well you maintain your oral health. For example, teeth whitening treatments may last up to a year or more with proper care, while porcelain veneers can last up to 10 years or more. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene habits can help prolong the results of your cosmetic dentistry treatments.
